Quick! What type of government does the United States have? Would it shock you to know that we don’t have a democracy? In fact many of our founding fathers and early presidents abhorred democratic government. James Madison once said, “Democracy is the most vile form of government. … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as the have been violent in their deaths.”

However, the founding fathers realized that certain properties of democracy would benefit America which is why they framed the United States as a democratic republic. They also recognized that a democratic republic would only be stable as long as God was at the center.

Today’s political atmosphere has shifted. Democratic socialism has become popular to some and to others it is still a taboo. Join Kevin Conover to dissect these often confusing political terms. What is democratic socialism and is it something to be feared? If we allow it in American are we opening the door to communism and ultimately fascism. Is this issue being blown out of proportion? Tune in and listen to Kevin break it down and explain why it’s so important to keep God at the center of our government.
